Ordinarily, external incoming links are a good thing, but what about when
it is not a good thing?  Is there a way to block a referring/incoming URL?

For example, www.company-one.com has a link to a particular page on
www.company-two.com's Web site.  Can company-two.com block the incoming
links that company-one has set up?

I am trying to fulfill a client's request.  Direct contact has been
established, a removal request has been sent and dismissed (by said
company-one), and now it is moving towards a legal/court situation.

So, what I'd like to do, if possible, is simply block the link that is
coming from the other web site.  Can I do this with .htaccess, or
something else as simple?  Google returned more noise than signal for the
KWs I searhced for.

"company-two" is running Apache on Linux.
